Classes take place at the main university building (called the 123 South building). All classrooms are set up for shared inquiry, a discussion-based method of learning in which professors and students sit around a table and work together to dive deep into the great books of our curriculum.

The DRBU Library houses a collection of over 40,000 books, including an extensive collection of Buddhist primary texts and classical texts in Chinese. Our course reserve contains required reading from our curriculum—students have the option of purchasing their textbooks or borrowing them out from the library. 

Our Sudhana Center dorm in downtown Ukiah is home to a community library comprised primarily of literature and fiction. It’s a cozy spot for students to browse and read at their leisure.

In addition, both the university building and student dorms contain multiple quiet spaces for students to study.
